‘Craft’y chapter

These boots were made for being featured on PBS.

When the next installment of PBS’ Emmy-nommed documentary series “Craft in America” premieres Oct. 17, it’ll feature an Oklahoma connection.

Guthrie’s own Lisa Sorrell will be among the four families featured on the “Family” episode, which aims to answer the question of whether talent is passed down from generation to generation. Sorrell is a bootmaker who opened her own business, Sorrell Custom Boots, customboots.net more than 15 years ago.

For more information, visit the “Craft in America” website

For a polar-opposite experience, Oklahoma City’s Lekeytha Dukes will appear on the Oct. 6 episode of “Judge Joe Brown.” She’s suing her brother, Randell Dukes, for $650. According to a CBS press release, the money was “for a loan the defendant used to promote a concert. Lekeytha says the defendant promised to repay her within a few days, but never did.  Randell says he lost money on the concert and doesn’t feel he owes the plaintiff because he baby sits her kids for free all the time.” —Rod Lott

Beautiful Creatures

More paranormal activity among teens with romance on their minds.


Drama

Rod Lott
I'm beginning to think that YA stands not for "young adult," but "yet another" — as in yet another book-based, supernatural-tinged teen romance to emerge in Twilight's wake. Beautiful Creatures is one of them. It's much better than Twilight, but hell, what's not?
